christina ernst - artist spotlight

I'd like to let you all now about a really good art show going on the Lower East Side, NYC of a dear colleague of mine. Christina Ernst is a painter and sculptor, with a BFA from Cooper Union. Her work is an expression of feelings and opinions on the situations in the world today. She portrays the stories of our time through paint, mixing figurative with the abstract. This juxtaposition represents the dichotomy between the inner and outside world. Texture is important to Chris in her paintings, as it gives them a sculptural quality. She creates texture with the use of oil paint, charcoal, and a mix of natural, found materials such as sand, bark, etc. Her colors are subtle earth tones, glazed and layered creating a multi-faceted vibrancy.
The show is up at: Sapphire Lounge, 249 Eldridge Street, New York, NY 11414
